WELCOME! - ENGLISH

HI EVERYONE and welcome to my website :

 

FRIENDLY&FUN!

MERRY&MUSICAL!

 

FIRST TIME VISITOR? SO WHO AM I :

I am me! Ha! Ha! Someone who likes to laugh - even when the jokes aren’t that funny…! Ok, let’s try again : who am I? Hmmmm excellent question. I would say that I’m someone who likes making music. All sorts of music. Children’s music. Classical music. And also pop, jazz, and world beat. Forever music. I teach it, write it, sing it, play it. It is fun, inspiring and liberating. It saves me interminable psychotherapy sessions. Music balances me out and accompanies me at all times.

CONFESSION : Hardly a secret. As you well know I don't do updates as much as I should though I've made some progress. Really I have, I have. Haven't I??? I'm pretty sure. Anyways I also have a Facebook page and sometimes my posts go first on there. Or they're different posts from here. But good news. You can follow me there too! Wow! 

MIND BOGGLING STATSTICS : Have to make sure to cross my t's and dot my i's on these write-ups because...drum roll...this site receives over 14 000 visits A YEAR!!!! And I'm talking real visits according to the colourful yet serious looking graph. Can't argue with those. So not hits nor other cryptic acronyms but true blue visits! Which is perfect as I have a great espresso machine for my guests. Ha! Ha! Okay maybe I should update my bio and other parts of the site instead of succumbing to the temptation of silliness...But seriously : thank you for stopping by here. I really and truly appreciate it.

FOR MORE PICS GO TO PHOTO GALLERY

It was Sunday, September 17, 2017. A beautiful sunny day with kids that carried the sun in their eyes!

Quote from Lidia, 10 years : “That was an awesome show! Especially with the piano. I loved the movements!” 

Do I need more to validate my calling? Melodies to stimulate the ear. Characters to fire up the imagination. Movements for coordination. But most rewarding the fun these kids have!

Thank you to Adam Cavaluzi - my incredibly talented producer and graphic illustrator. Thank you to all that participated in my fundraising campaign. You participated in making a dream come true…
